Anakee Wild

While shopping around for parts that I couldn't find I spotted the new Michelin Anakee Wild. The shop only had 120 front and 170 rear in 1190 Std/GS sizes, no 90/90-21 nor 150/70-18 but they "should" be receiving more tires from Michelin tomorrow.
Looks promising:

Been a long time waiting for these tires to hit the shelves. I've read they will come in 150/70-17 and 110/80-19 sizes for other ADV applications. Did you happen to get a price on these bad boys?

They look like TKC 80's with a little swirl to the pattern.

These will fit the 1190 Adv Std...

In Feb. I asked Michelin about the availability of these in the US.
We appreciate your interest in Michelin tires.

No announcement has been made regarding the 120/90-19 and 170/60-17 sizes regarding when they will be launched in North America.


We appreciate your business and thank you for choosing Michelin.

So last year, I got a set of Alpina 19/17 tubeless wheels for my 990R with the plan to swap my wheels / brake rotors / side stand every time I wanted the original 21/18 wheels and tires for different riding. I installed Conti Trail Attack IIs on my 19/17 wheels (which as most people know is just a road tire with a "trail designation" and no off road capability whatsoever). The truth is that I never bothered swapping wheels because of the effort required to swap rotors, etc over which meant that any off roading I did was light at best (gravel and hard pack). I love the bike with the 19/17 setup - it has transformed it for road riding but the truth is that I do want better off road capability so I have been considering just going with the TKC80 in 19/17 setup and never changing to my 21/18 wheels. The one concern I have had is that if I did that, how much of my road riding would be compromised with the TKC80 since it is essentially a "road-worthy" knobby. Does anyone have any thoughts about this Anakee Wild or is it pretty much the same road performance as a TKC80? The truth is that I just need three bikes: the Adventure bike with off road capability and great touring, the sport bike for road carving and short trips and then the city bike for taking my wife out for a coffee and looking like a cool hipster doofus :)

Any feedback / thoughts on the tire dilemma would be greatly appreciated.

Not when you're ham-fisted!

They wont last, but they perform better as a compromise tire than the Mefo or K60, IMO, albeit with a shorter life span. I'll buy them, front & rear, for a cheap commuter / gravel tire.

A set for $150ish free shipping... good deal!

Holy Moly! Where do they sell them for a $150/pair? I'd be interested in trying them at that price. I'd rather use other tires at $275 a pair, which is what I've seen them priced at.

you may want to read again. This is OT, but here is my experience with the k3 from this thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=857265

i spooned one on the back of my ktm, and rode mostly offroad/mixed surfaces for just one afternoon of riding for less then 200 miles and this was my experience:

10 miles


40 miles


80 miles


180 miles
